CLIFFORD & FLOSSIE DRAKE REGULATED DRAIN
The Surveyor's Office was contacted by a property owner along the Clifford & Flossie Drake Regulated Drain in late 2005 about constructing an open ditch upstream from the current beginning point of the open ditch. Upon discussing the matter further with additional property owners along the ditch in early 2006, the request was made for a surface drain to be constructed in conjunction with the existing tile drain upstream from the termination point of the proposed extension of the open ditch.
Other surveying projects that were already scheduled pushed the beginning date of the Clifford & Flossie Drake Regulated Drain survey back to a beginning point of January 23, 2007. The survey was completed on April 17, 2007. In mid-June 2007, the survey was delivered to John Dorow, P.E.. Mr. Dorow will be preparing plans that are expected to be delivered to the Surveyor's Office no later than October 2007. Barring any unforeseen circumstances, work is scheduled to commence late 2007 - early 2008.
DELBERT SWINDELL REGULATED DRAIN
In late 2006, approximately 500 feet of the Delbert Swindell Regulated Tile Drain was replaced on the north side of County Road 800 North. Since January 2005, if distances of tile greater than 100 feet is replaced, the Surveyor's Office survey field crew is required to prepare a survey to accurately depict the location of the tile drain. On December 5, 2006, the survey field crew conducted a survey to accurately depict the location of that portion of the Delbert Swindell Regulated Tile Drain that was replaced.
DOC B. DAVIS REGULATED DRAIN
In the late summer months of 2006, the Surveyor's Office was contacted by property owners along the Doc B. Davis Regulated Drain. Major flooding was (and continues) taking place on the extreme upstream portion of the regulated drain. Due to the fact that this particular regulated drain had more than adequate funds to cover a minor project, a topography survey was immediately scheduled. On November 29, 2006, surveying began on the Doc B. Davis Regulated Drain and was completed on June 5, 2007. In mid-June, 2007, the survey was delivered to John Dorow, P.E. for the design of a surface drain from the tile outlet to the extreme upstream beginning of the Doc B. Davis Regulated Drain. Design plans are expected to be delivered to the Surveyor's Office no later than October 2007. Barring any unforeseen circumstances, work is scheduled to begin late 2007 - early 2008.
E.E. EDWARDS REGULATED DRAIN
In late 2006, the Surveyor's Office was contacted about a pond that was constructed over the E. E. Edwards Regulated Tile Drain. Due to the circumstances involving this, Surveyor Newman determined that additional information was needed downstream of the ponds location. On December 18, 2006, the survey field crew completed a survey of the E. E. Edwards Regulated Drain for this purpose.
GEORGE KIRK REGULATED DRAIN
In early 1997, a topography survey was prepared for the George Kirk Regulated Drain from the drains intersection with County Road 600 North to its outlet into Indian Creek, which is north of County Road 500 North and east of County Road 400 West. The survey was one of two topography surveys prepared by the use of Surveyor's Office staff during the 1990's. This particular survey was prepared by Lowell Pitser, L.S., who was a Madison County Surveyor's Office employee at the time. The purpose of the survey was to assist in the design of a surface drain between the aforementioned points. A Professional Engineer was not hired and the surface drain was not constructed.
In early 2007, Doug Drake at a regular scheduled Drainage Board Meeting asked that Surveyor Newman inspect the intersection of County Road 600 North and County Road 100 West. Being involved with the 1997 survey and having worked in the Surveyor's Office from November 1988 to September 1999, Surveyor Newman was well aware of the flooding that has taken place at that intersection for a number of years. The George Kirk Regulated Drain was added to the Madison County Drainage Report on January 25, 2006 with the anticipation of completing the efforts made in 1997. Mr. Drake's request expedited the Surveyor's Office plans for this drain.
Also, in early 2007, it was brought to the Surveyor's Office attention that a surface drain had already been cut along the George Kirk Regulated Tile Drain. This work was conducted without the Surveyor's Office knowledge or permission. However, the work conducted is within the scope of the plans that the Surveyor's Office has for this particular regulated drain.
Since the survey in 1997 obtained data to County Road 600 North, the only additional data that was necessary was from the 1997 surveys ending point on County Road 600 North to the intersection of County Road 600 North and County Road 100 West. On April 24, 2007, the additional survey was completed by the Surveyor's Office survey field crew. In mid-June 2007, the 1997 survey and the 2007 survey was delivered to John Dorow, P.E. for the purpose of designing a surface drain that will allow the intersection of County Road 600 North and County Road 100 West to drain. The plans are expected to be delivered to the Surveyor's Office no later than October 2007. Barring any unforeseen circumstances, work is scheduled to begin late 2007 - early 2008.
GLEN BOONE REGULATED DRAIN
In late summer 2006, the County Surveyor's Office Drainage Coordinator requested a survey be prepared for that portion of the Glen Boone Regulated Drain near the tile outlet where a surface drain was constructed by the Town of Lapel with the Drainage Board's permission several years ago. On November 21, 2006, the Surveyor's Office survey field crew completed the requested survey. The Drainage Coordinator's question was answered and unfortunately, there were no realistic options for taking care of the apparent problem.
GROENDYKE REGULATED DRAIN
During early summer 2006, the Surveyor's Office was contacted by a property owner who was having problems with the Groendyke Regulated Drain. It was apparent that the construction of a short surface drain would fix several problems. On November 15, 2006, a survey was prepared for the purposes of designing a surface drain. Upon completing the survey, additional information was obtained by the Madison County Drainage Coordinator and it became apparent that there were multiple problems throughout the Groendyke Regulated Drain. On April 18, 2007, DeBoy Land Development was hired for the purpose of preparing a preliminary report for the Groendyke Regulate Drain. The preliminary report will be available for public viewing once received by the Surveyor's Office.
SOUTH MADISON DRAINAGE PROJECT
On April 6, 2006, the Madison County Surveyor's Office began preparing a topography survey for an area that included several subdivisions along Main Street, County Road 500 South east and west of Main Street, the C.C. Williams Regulated Drain south of County Road 500 South, and the Ballard-Norris Regulated Drain south of Norris Drive. The subdivisions included in this survey are Village Colony, Ballard's 1st and 2nd Addition, Norris Heights, and portions of Fall Creek Heights and Shock Addition. The topography survey was completed on September 15, 2006.
The Surveyor's Office had anticipated conducting the drafting work in-house, however, multiple projects and unforeseen circumstances made this an impossible task in a realistic time-frame. Surveyor Newman relinquished the drafting duties to Precise Land Surveying in early May 2007. Upon completion of the drafting work, this project will be turned over to a Professional Engineer. It is the Surveyor's Office expectations that this will happen in mid-July, 2007. Expectations are for a preliminary report to be received no later than late October 2007.
Major flooding has been reported in Village Colony, Ballard's 1st Addition, and along the north and south sides of County Road 500 South between Main Street and Madison Avenue (County Road 100 West). Also, standing water has been reported in Norris Heights Addition and currently, in Shock Addition. Shock Addition experienced major flooding in the past, but after the series of retention ponds constructed for the new Church of God Facility, flooding has considerably diminished in Shock Addition.
The Surveyor's Office will require the Professional Engineer involved with the project to look at multiple solutions for this area. The Engineer's Report will be available for public review once received by the Surveyor's Office.
HENRY KEMP REGULATED DRAIN
In the later summer months of 2005, the Surveyor's Office was contacted by a property owner affected by the Henry Kemp Regulated Drain. A request was made for a surface drain to be constructed to work in conjunction with the tile drain. On February 9, 2006, the survey for the Henry Kemp Regulated Drain was completed by the Surveyor's Office field crew. On August 20, 2006, John Dorow, P.E. was hired for the purpose of designing a surface drain through that portion of the drain in which it was needed. Mr. Dorow delivered the design plans to the Surveyor's Office in December 2006. Inclimate weather delayed the construction of the surface drain to May 2007, but the surface drain was completed by mid-May.
